Pros

Love the dedicated team who provide great care for residents under difficult circumstances

Cons

Dedicated LTC professionals are not allowed to do what's best for their residents when all the corporate cares about is money. It takes money to make money. You cheap out, you get what you pay for.

Advice to Management

Get back to doing what you started out with and what grew your business.....caring for people.

    Pros

    most of my co workers made it easier to come to work every day

    Cons

    the pay sucks for all we do. we pass meds,do wash,serve food and wipe bottoms none stop asked to fax med orders and do cycle fills for the nurse as if we have the time. we are caregivers, dinning servers,bus boys,laundeary assistent,dont forget we have to plung the toliet and clean carpets if you work 2nd or 3rd shift if you want to send a resident out because of a fall you have to make phone call after phone call just to get an ok(as resident remains on the floor 20-30min) before you can even call an ems to take them to get looked at. Med carts are handed to people with liltte to no training with meds. the turn around is dumb founding on psa's i cant even tell you how many have been throw the doors since i started. people get put in a managment spot then moved with no notice and a pay cut. this has happend two time already this year already and the poor ladys this happend to are great and hard workers!

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    1. You will appreciate future jobs much more.
    2. As with any job in geriatric care, you are afforded the opportunity to touch the lives of seniors.
    3. The company offers MANY trainings....They are great if you want to know anything and everything there is to know about high pressure sales! That is the ONLY thing for which you will receive adequate training.

    Cons

    1. Staff to patient ratio is INSANELY low. There is a formula for how many labor hours you are allowed for care attendants, cooks, maintenance, & housekeeping. If they can't do it all (which is impossible) the salaried Director gets to pick up the slack.
    2. Directors are not permitted to make any decisions on their own. They must seek divisional level approval to terminate an employee!
    3. There is miles of red tape wrapped around everything that needs to be accomplished. Going through several months of Texas summer with no A/C because it took an act of congress for repairs/replacement to be approved is just crazy.
    4. The budgets are so low that residents are subjected to substandard quality in all aspects of their lives.
    5. Corporate does not consider local markets when assessing the needs of an individual home. (Mostly because they don't assess homes individually, they seem to think that all homes should run successfully based on the "cookie cutter" model dreamed up by some big wig executive who has never actually attempted to wotk at the house level and really assess what it will take for success!)

    Typing this just makes me angry and hurts my heart for the residents who are left to the mercy of these corporate giants that could care less about them.

    If you are in this industry for the purpose of CARING for the geriatric population, then this is not the right company for you!

    If you, however, are a high pressure sales person who cares about nothing other than the thrill of making a sale...hey....Good luck to you! You will make sale after sale and do it all for free, because if the house doesn't maintain occupancy, you're never going to see the bonuses you are promised. Your financial success is dependent upon the currect residents being happy, well cared for, and sticking around.

    Advice to Management

    Give up while you still have money in your pockets! You are in enough deep sh*t across the country right now. People are starting to notice. Sell out to someone who is in this industry for the right reasons.
